A mustang wouldn't work very well for me, hauling snowboards, mountain bikes, a weekend worth of stuff up north with me. But a Focus does, and having one that's seriously quick, and a blast to drive is great. Let's see you throw a 55 inch TV in it's box in a mustang, you can in a Focus RS, or a Focus ST.
In that light, a Focus RS Wagon would rule! It would not siphon Mustang buyers and it would be practical yet fast and outrageous and way cool. I agree with the one car idea myself. The car could easily set up with different power modes to civilize it for daily use or sporting use.
